The North American Mycoflora Project (NAMP) consists of a series of individual projects at the regional, state, and local levels. Mycological societies and individual collectors from across the continent are joining together to document the biodiversity and distribution of macrofungi (visible to the naked eye) in North America. You can play a significant role by registering your local project and incorporating your data into our protocols.
